4 Factors That Influence Growth and Development (We are raising ADULTS)

5 What is Child Development? Pg 21 in text Development is the process that –Turns babies into adults –Has stages –Begins at conception –Ends at death Child Development is –The scientific study of children from conception to adolescence

6 What Are the Factors that Influence the Growth and Development of Children? Heredity –Genes Hair color and other body features

7 What Are the Factors that Influence the Growth and Development of Children? Environment –Conditions –Experiences In the early years this is primarily the family.In the early years this is primarily the family.

8 What is Environment? 1. List ten examples of important environment factors that can affect children.

9 Effects of Poverty What does a child need in his or her environment to develop well? What does it cost? 2.What is the poverty level income for a family of 3 that has 1 child? See for the answer. 3.Describe the most important fact from this website: 4AF DA81AFE4D18http://www.childtrends.org/_pressrelease_page.cfm?LID=AB8E AF DA81AFE4D18

10 What Are the Factors that Influence the Growth and Development of Children? Heredity and Environment COMBINED! –Your height is influenced by your diet (environment) and your genes (heredity)

11 Sasha and Benji Sasha, age four, and Benji, age two, are brother and sister. Sasha has black hair, dark skin, and deep brown eyes. She is quiet and dependable, talking only when necessary. When her parents leave her at the child care center, she is content to play quietly. She prefers to play alone, with dolls or puzzles, but often watches the other children. Benji has brown hair, fair skin, and light brown eyes. He prefers playing with tractors, trucks, and blocks with other children. He is talkative and becomes bored when he plays alone. List some reasons for the differences in these children. 4. List several heredity reasons and several environment reasons for their differences.

12 Our Responsibility – To provide the best environment we can.

13 Principles of Growth and Development Growth and Development are Constant –Constancy - the unchanging aspects of a person’s development Tall 2 yr olds tend to be… Good elementary students tend to be … Happy children tend to be … –Heredity does not change and environments tend to remain constant 5. Complete the phrases above.

14 Principles of Growth and Development Growth and Development are Gradual and Continuous –Because changes happen in small steps. –Good development does not reverse overnight –Some development can be made up for in later years –Poor growth and development is not easily reversed 6. How does poverty affect this principle of development?

15 Principles of Growth and Development Growth and Development happen in sequenced steps –The order is predictable, the rate of change is individual –A teachable moment is the time when the child is physically ready, when the environment supports the achievement and when the child is motivated to learn

16 Principles of Growth and Development Growth and Development have interrelated parts. –We may talk about the areas separately, but in reality they are related. For instance, as children’s bodies grow and mature, their motor skills improve, which helps their social skills, which helps them communicate and learn new ideas, which helps their thinking skills, which helps them play more complex games, which helps their motor skills. 7. Create another example of interrelated development like the one above.
